One as in you and me, not one the number, wonders what will happen at the Galpharm Stadium before, during and after this match, which takes on more significance due to the terrible form and growing discontent that is being displayed by many terriers fans, with the poor team displays and at times frankly ridiculous statements made by terriers manager Andy Ritchie.
Brighton are sitting pretty in 9th position in FL1 with a genuine chance of making the play offs.
That's genuine as in the Oxford English dictionary definition of the word, not the Andy Ritchie version.
Andy Ritchie - 'With nine games still to go we have to get as many wins as we can and finish as high up the table as we can."
Yes that's the idea of a League, thanks for that Andy.
Could Daniel Broadbent feature again, or even Lucas Akins.
Jevons and Cadamarteri are out, Ritchie has the same players available as against Southend on Saturday
Personally I will be watching the wolly hatted one a lot more closely than usual.
Unless of course the team decides to turn out as it occasionally does, and the action on the pitch is actually worth watching.
Matt Richards is out with a hamstring injury (full back), so Kerry Mayo should start in his place.
Midfielder Paul Reid and defender Adam Hinshelwood (both knee) are their other injured players.
I have long been an admirer of Nicky Forster, the much travelled now veteran striker is Brightons top scorer with 16, and has netted 4 times in his last 5 games.
Brighton have won four of their last six games the others two being a loss and a draw.
The game at Withdean in January was 1-1 thanks to Williams one and only free kick success since signing rescued a point.
Huddersfields recent form is very poor.
Bookies have it at 5/4 Town 11/5 Draw 7/4 Brighton. I go with the draw again. The other match result could be, a lot of noise and protest should we lose again. My advice to our hapless manager is to wear a crash helmet and ear muffs not his usual wolly hat should we be defeated. Also, whatever the outcome, - say something sensible after the game, something the average fan will believe, in short be honest.
Away To Bristol Rovers, Saturday 22/3
